GRIDLEY, Calif. - With the memory of the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting still fresh in everyone's minds, Butte County Fair organizers say public safety remains a top priority.

With ten local law enforcement groups patrolling the fairgrounds, Gridley-Biggs Police Department is among them and shared with Action News Now what is planned.

"We've been beefing up our presence here based on that scenario that happened in Gilroy. That's what we've been doing for years now to make sure this is a safe community fair," said Lieutenant Rodney Harr.

Fair organizers hired their own security teams and have been checking vendors since Sunday.

30 officers will be patrolling the grounds throughout all times and even more will be outside the gates where a metal detector and bag check will be required to get in.

We're closing out the month of November in a pleasant way in northern California Tuesday. We'll have some gusty wind tonight and early Wednesday, but December will begin with warmer and drier than average weather.
